Ask anyone born between 1975 and 1990 about gaming and chances are they've got fond memories of Super Mario Kart or Street Fighter II on Nintendo's original SNES console. Originally launched in Japan in 1990 and here in the UK in '92, it went toe-to-toe with the Sega Mega Drive for living room domination.
Forbes
Nintendo sold 4 million SNES Classic Edition units since that system was released in late 2017. That's a pretty staggering figure when you think about it, especially since the company was also selling Nintendo Switch units hand over fist. Over 13 million Switch units have been sold-through to consumers since the system's launch in early 2017.

In the early days of video games, input was simpler. Controllers just had a single digital joystick, or a rotating wheel, and maybe a button or two. But as the industry evolved in the 1980s and '90s, controllers, systems and games themselves became increasingly sophisticated and challenging to navigate.
Ars Technica
REDMOND, Washington-The Xbox Adaptive Controller (XAC), slated to launch "later this year," looks almost incomplete at first glance. The clean, confusing-looking slab, nearly the length and width of an Xbox One S, has no joysticks. The usual selection of Xbox inputs has been reduced down to a few menu buttons, a D-pad, and two black, hand-sized pads.
The Verge
Microsoft has announced the Xbox Adaptive Controller, an Xbox controller designed for people with disabilities. The device was leaked earlier this week. It has two large programmable buttons and 19 jacks that can be connected to a range of joysticks, buttons, and switches to make it easier for a wider range of people to play games.
